Chapter Summary

The living emperor Augustus was built in the eastern provinces of the temple, in the western altars. In Rome itself there was such buildings only for deceased and kon-sekrierte Kaiser, however, since Augustus the Genius Augusti and since Tiberius the numen Augusti was also sacrificed here, which came close since the early imperial period of divine worship of the living ruler. Dynastic Statue groups are well known since Julio-Claudian period and were the presentation of the ruling dynasty. Clauss, who was last dealt at length with the imperial cult, brings as an appendix to his work a collection of inscriptions according to which living emperors were venerated. Septimius Severus and his family take a while an especially large space, all records from the provinces come, and no one comes out of Rome or Italy. The original text of the chapter is in German.
